Additional tips
  • A looseleaf service, also known as a commentary, was originally published in binders which allowed pages to be removed and added for updates. Most of these commentaries are now available online on Lexis+, Westlaw AU and CCH iKnowConnect.
  • Looseleaf services may include the most recent service number or the date of last update.
  • Pinpoints should be to paragraphs and appear in square brackets [ ], unless the ¶ symbol is used (often in CCH), in which case square brackets are omitted.

Online looseleaf service - author (AGLC4 rule 7.8)
